    SM Stationery Art Fest 2018

    I had a brilliant time at the SM Stationery Art Fest Launch last May 9, 2018. The launch gave us a taste of what activities we can expect on May 12-13 for all those who will join the event! Several of the countries most loved brands were there to showcase their products and they have booths where you can try your hand at drawing, calligraphy, painting and even slime making! Ballpens – you can never have enough!! Pilot also introduced us to erasable highlighters (not pictured) which blew our minds. Why didn’t we have this when we were at school? There were also a lot of workshops your favorite local…

    Getting back into writing

    Hi everyone who has ever visited this space in the internet. I have no excuses why I stopped taking care of this website – maybe because the pictures on my old posts are disappearing for some reason (it’s like Thanos affected them) or because I am no longer happy with the layout (shame on this useless IT professional) – but I think it’s time to get back to writing. I still want to record my thoughts and funny experiences in this blog, no matter that I don’t plug it in my Instagram. Writing, like painting, is something you do for you.

    Recap: January 2018

    Hello 2018! I went from blogging every month to not updating for two months! Hope you bear with me on this very lengthy update. Last December I had two trips to Japan – one with my friend to watch Bigbang’s Last Dance Concert and the other one with my family. When I started my official leave from work I just wanted to spend quality time with my family and friends. Leaves are precious when you are an employee so I really aimed to get my much-needed rest and relaxation. I still painted of course, and even brought my Escoda  watercolorbook and brushes (thank you Escoda family!) to Japan! I’m not…

    October Workshops And Suggestions for Artists Planning a Workshop

    I had a back-to-back art workshop at Art in Aura last October. I don’t know what came over me to schedule workshops for the weekends, as if holding one workshop wasn’t a challenge enough! Looking back, I was pretty stressed out about it (talking to so many people reminded me of my management trainee days), given once again it decided to rain very hard (why the typhoon just happens to hit Manila when I have a workshop is a mystery….). Before diving into the workshop pictures, I’d take this opportunity to write about what goes on when I decide to have a workshop.  If you are just interested in seeing…

    Art in Aura: Realistic Florals Watercolor Workshop

    I was invited by SM Aura to conduct a watercolor workshop last August 26, as part of their Art in Aura campaign, and since BGC is a place I haven’t put up a workshop yet I immediately said yes! There are also artists’ booths selling merchandise around the area. Art in Aura happens every weekend and artists are encouraged to join! There was supposedly a storm coming that day so inside of using the Providore Backyard as the venue, we were relocated inside the mall – which was a blessing because of the aircon!! A bunch of kids playing with my Prang before the workshop started. Know any kids that like…
